[New-bugs-announce] [issue13359] urllib2 doesn't escape spaces in http requests

New submission from Davide Rizzo <sorcio at gmail.com>:

urllib2.urlopen('http://foo/url and spaces') will send a HTTP request line like this to the server:

GET /url and spaces HTTP/1.1

which the server obviously does not understand. This contrasts with urllib's behaviour which replaces the spaces (' ') in the url with '%20'.
